Vacation Rentals explored by Today Show and WE Magazine

Last Saturday morning the Today Show featured a segment about non-traditional alternatives for vacation accommodations. One option growing in popularity is vacation rentals. Why stay at a hotel, when you can vacation in style at a luxury villa, home or condominium – often for substantially less money?

Today several websites offer easy point-and-click access to vacation rental accommodations around the world. Vacationers can search by location, number of bedrooms and baths, amenities and price. They can determine distance from major attractions in the area; learn about possible maid service, internet access and a myriad of other options that add to their vacation experience. Photographs, descriptions and a host of other details are all spelled out for you, simplifying the process of making comparisons.

Once you find a home, condominium – even a castle or sprawling country estate – that fits your specific needs, you are invited to contact the owner directly to answer your additional questions.

“They also love the special amenities they find in vacation rental homes that just can’t be found at hotels. These may include private fireplaces or whirlpool spas … dens and family rooms equipped with large-screen TVs and other tech toys … boating, fishing, skiing or other sports equipment … and many other surprises.”

Rosalind also notes that Villa4vacation and some other top websites offer those listing a residence a Credit Card Acceptance Program. “This service enables vacation rental owners to easily accept credit card payments, thereby simplifying the reservation process for vacation planners,” she notes.

Whether you desire one bedroom or several, a big-city condominium or sprawling country estate, our search-engine technology lets you hone in on the vacation home of your dreams.”
